If you want to provide the highest standards of internal or outsourced IT Service Management (ITSM), you need ISO 20000 certification. This international standard is already widely recognised by the IT industry as evidence of excellence in all areas of IT service provision. Following the ISO 20000 framework will give you a competitive advantage by ensuring your ITSM services are robust, efficient and responsive.
ISO 20000 is a framework for businesses wanting to implement a service management system (SMS) and then monitor, review, maintain and improve upon it.
The standard allows businesses to document the design, transition, delivery and improvement of their services and evaluate whether those services are meeting their objectives.
ISO 20000 is especially relevant for business that are seeking assurance that their service requirements will be fulfilled or are looking to establish a consistent approach across its business and supply chain.
The cost of certification depends on several factors. These include your business sector, your annual turnover, and the number of employees you have. We will also need to know if you require any specific industry accreditation, such as from ASCB or UKAS.
However, we are committed to providing you with a cost-effective route to ISO 20000 implementation and certification. That’s why we focus on making certification straightforward. By spending less time creating complex document trails and more time building a risk management system that works for your business, we can save you money.

Once you have achieved certification you will need to pass an audit each year. This is to ensure your IT management services continue to meet the ISO 20000 standard. Your first audit will be one year after you receive your certificate.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
